If you want to attend college after graduation, you must take certain courses to meet state university admission requirements.
The course requirements for state university admission are the same for two Bright Futures Scholarship awards: the Florida Academic Scholars and Florida Medallion Scholars.
So, by following the college prep curriculum, you meet the course requirements for high school graduation, state university admission, and two Bright Futures Scholarship awards.
This option is required for state university admission and recommended (but not required) if you intend to pursue an Associate in Arts (AA) degree at a Florida college (previously know as community colleges) and then transfer to college or university to complete a Bachelor's degree.
Selecting the right courses in high school and planning ahead is more important than ever. Qualifying for graduation, Bright Futures Scholarships, and state university admission all include meeting specific course requirements.
